December Grant Reminder
It’s that exciting time of year again! We are currently undergoing our December team grant cycle! Youth shooting teams with a balance in their MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment that didn’t apply in June 2019, are eligible to apply for their annual cash grant. Applicants must complete the MidwayUSA Foundation Grant Application and submit it by December 15th. Teams can receive 5% of their endowment balance to use for their expenses, such as ammunition, travel, entry fees, uniforms, targets, and more. Teams are eligible to apply for their cash grant, every year and early submissions are encouraged. We lock in your endowment balance on December 15th; therefore, you can continue to grow your endowment, after submitting the application, until the deadline!
The December 2019 cycle has over 2,250 teams eligible, and a potential payout of about $4.3 million. In their last grant cycle, the Foundation paid $1.7 million in grants to 521 youth shooting teams. Each year the number of grant applications submitted has increased. Ideally, every shooting team with an endowment will receive a grant each year. If you need assistance or have questions about eligibility, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
